I am just getting back to sewing and purchased a dress pattern. I took my measurements but can’t figure out what to do. I fall within 1/2" to 1" on most of the measurements for an 18 but when it comes to the waist I am a good 3" too big and that is pulling it snug.
I am pretty straight up and down but when I go into stores and purchase clothes I can generally wear a 12 (I do understand that store clothes and patterns are different) and I don’t run into the problem of everything fitting except the waist. I even checked my daughters measurements and she is a couple inches larger in the waist.
Any advice on what to do? Can a pattern even be enlarged by 3" in spot?
